India history and geogprahy
Bhujaṅga.—(IA 20), an ogre. The word bhujaṅga was adopted in Javanese in the sense of a ‘pupil, disciple, scholar; a philologist, poet, literary councillor; an officially appointed professional usually residing at or near the court’. It has been suggested on this basis that Bhavadeva-bhaṭṭa's title Bālavalabhī-bhujaṅga may really mean ‘the pupil of the Bālavalabhī school’. See IHQ, Vol. XXVII, pp. 80-82. Note: bhujaṅga is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Indian Epigraphical Glossary
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
